  1. No fault car accident

    Thanks for all the input guys. Rather than just straight say no, I know the owner of a local body shop, so I'll get a "go away" quote from him. Just checked, a like for like hire car is about £41.00 a day, so I think that on top of the actual repair price will put the guy off. Thanks again.
  2. No fault car accident

    Quick bit of advice, please. My wife's car got hit whilst in a queue of stationary traffic, the other party has admitted fault, and given us insurance details. She spoke to our insurance and gave all the details etc and they said, yes the other party is covered etc. The bloke then rang and said he wanted to pay personally, so could we get a quote for him. In theory I'm not against this, but our insurance policy gives us a like for like replacement car whilst our is in for repairs and few other benefits which we will not get if we put it into a random garage. As I have his insurance details, can I refuse his request and just go via his insurance Company anyway? Thanks
  3. Sonos Play 1

    Bought this at the weekend with a free bridge to go in the kitchen. I have to say what a great piece of kit, set up was a breeze and it does exactly what it say on the tin. Pointed it in the direction of the shared music folder on my NAS drive and away you go. I guess it's quite expensive espically if you start expanding to other rooms, but I can't fault it so far.
  4. Help Me Choose

    Just read through the whole thread in my lunchbreak, the only thing I would add is that if you have small children and your carting pushchairs around and everthing else that goes with them, espically on holidays, you can never have a big enough boot.
  5. What Plasma Telly?

    Mu boss recently took delivery of a 65inch 4k Samsung. Was round his house last night playing poker, I have to say the picture looked fantastic. The sound was pretty good too, but he had just spent £6k on a new sound system at the same time.

    Heading down on Monday with wife and two girls (5 & 2) for a few days, any suggestions for good things to do/go if the weathers not to clever? Thanks
  7. BT Infinity

    Thanks for the reply guys, one more question. How to you find it? is it reliable? On some tech forums there's lot of people complaining that they get drop outs etc. I know people tend to only write on a forum if there's problem so just wondered how you guys were finding it. Thanks again

    Cheers guys, thanks for all the information.

    Just had a letter through from BT saying my exchange has been upgraded to this, so I can now order it. Going on their website it estimates I'll get 33mb download, can't remember upload. How accurate are these estimates, and what do people think of the whole BT Infinity service. Thanks

    We're planning on taking our two girls up to Chester for a few nights over the October bank holiday. Use it as a base to go to the zoo etc. We're thinking of renting an apartment in Chester, so just a quick question, are there any areas where we don't want to stay in, if you get my meaning? Also any other suggestions about places to go whilst we're there would be helpful. Thanks
  11. Podcast download

    My trusty Nokia 5800 has finally given up the ghost, and I've got a iphone as a replacement. Most things seem fine, except that I could set my Nokia to download my podcasts at night when the new ones became available. As I don't want to sync to itunes, is there any other way of doing this on the iphone. Thanks
  12. Fitness thread - Q1/12

    I'm still progressing slowly for the Reading Half marathon on the 1st April. (1st ever long distance run) Got to half distance at end of September, then dropped off a bit during November and December, but back up to 9 Miles now. Due to family, only get to run twice a week at the moment, tend to do one shorter "faster" and one longer "race pace" run. I intend to increase to full race distance by end of Feb/early March and then drop of a little bit in the last couple of weeks before the race. If this is not a good idea or if anybody has any other tips or suggestions that would be great. Thanks
  13. Rust on Mk5 Golf

    jmarsden0, my claim has been thrown out by VW for the same reason, I too have been given the customer care number but haven't got round to calling it yet. Maybe if enough claims are being turned down for the same reason, could you say it was a design fault and VW should at lease put something towards the cost as a goodwill gesture? My Gti has done 63k, but I'd be interested to know, if you can get any extra information out of anybody who had this problem fixed under warrenty.
  14. The TSN Diet and Exercise Thread.

    Thanks for the suggestions guys, a friend also suggested skipping what do you think? I've booked my place on the half marathon yesterday, so I'm commited now!
  15. The TSN Diet and Exercise Thread.

    I'm 43 years old and have not done any serious exercise since I left school. I decided last year to do two things in the next two years I never done before (mid life crisis?), this year was horse riding having never sat on a horse, I'm now onto my fourth lesson and starting to get the hang of the rising trott. Next year I'm going to run the Reading half marathon, again having never done this sort of thing before. I started training in April this year the race is in March 2012. I don't have a huge amount of spare time but I'm now up to about 5miles per run (once or twice a week)and feel I'm slowly getting there. Has anybody got any suggestions for some quick in house exercises I could do to help if I cannot get out for a run?
